some people walk along a road in darkness, when they see a snake. each one reacts according to his nature, predisposition, condition etc: one jumps, another turns and runs, still another picks up a stone, another is petrified with fear ...

and then someone lights a match. in the light it is seen that what was taken to be a snake, is just a piece of rope ...

now, with the downing of knowledge of the rope - the snake disappears. the snake existed and was real (each one reacted to a real snake) - but only as long as there was an absence of knowledge of its true nature.

thus any discussions about the color of the snake, its gender, size, where it came from and where it was going to - are meaningless, since once the rope is recognized, the snake never was ...
